dishcloth turned bib

Girly Bib
 To make this bib I started out with this pattern and altered it.

The Cotton Dishcloth (Once Removed or Dressed Up!)
Designed by: Marion Torgerson
Rating: Easy - Medium
Materials: 1 ball worsted weight cotton yarn, size 7, 8, 9 or 10 US needles. (7 gives a tight knit that is still soft, yet scrubs)  (I used 7s)
Cast on 15 stitches
Row 1 and all odd rows: K across.
Row 2: K3, YO, K to last st, turn.
Row 4: K3, YO, K to last 2 sts, turn.

Row 16: K3, YO, K to last 8 sts, turn.

Thanks so much for sending me the info on where to find this bib--I REALLY LOVE IT!! And I think it was very clever for you to turn a dishcloth into a usable bib design. Love it!! Thanks so much for sharing--I am going to make this to match instead of a hat--it's much quicker, and too, a little bit different than the same old, same old:) So thanks bunches!! Can't wait to see what you come up with next!

This is a lovely pattern.. I think it could be adapted to make a lovely shawl too.

This is so cute! My new granddaughter will be receiving a few of these in the near future! Thank you for sharing this pattern. Happy knitting!
Tejpreet said…
Cute! Is this made in one piece? I'm a beginner knitter.. pls help!
Yayumi said…
A question: how could I make this bib for my 1 year old daughter? I tried using size 9 needles and it does make it a bit bigger and looser.
Love this! THanks for the pattern!

I found your bib pattern on Ravelry, and linked to here. I had to laugh when I read in your profile that you are trying to stop cursing. I have been trying to do that, myself. It's not as easy as it would seem! Actually, when I stop to think about it, I believe I have been trying to stop cursing for about 17 years!! I tend to beat myself up when I "slip", yet I do keep trying!(lol)
Thank you for the Bib pattern! It is really cute and unique! It is a great idea for a quick baby gift!

Do I wrap when turning my short row? Or is the hole created, by not wrapping, part of the pattern?
Great bib, can't wait to knit it, I think ppl like you who can make patterns are pure genius, major thanks to you xox
Cheryl said…
Hi there,

No, in the pattern you dont do a wrap and turn. That's how the hole is created. If you dont want a hole you can do a wrap and turn! Its up to you! But it may affect the end result of how well it forms a circle.

Thanks Cheryl, can't tell you enough just how great I think you are for giving these patterns for free!
I'm from UK so yarn is named worsted weight the same as chunky? And if I used 2 strands of baby cashmerino would that do the same job?
When I say beginner I mean like 3wks into knitting lol, I've knitted a baby cardigan, a pair of baby Mary-Janes, a headband and this bib will be my 4th item knit, can't wait to see if my skills are good enough for this bib, it is SO CUTE!!!! Doing ur manly bib next!! How do I send u pix on here? Do u have Facebook for ur "fans" as I know exactly how THAT works lol!
Cheryl said…
Chunky is not the same as worsted weight. Its bigger.

Worsted weight is 10 ply. I'm not sure how its described in the UK.

Try this link and see if that helps you any.

I adore this pattern and am trying to make one for a dear friend's new grandbaby. I'm a fairly new knitter as far as working with patterns. Is this what's called "short rows"? I've never done that.
Stormie said…
Cheryl, I absolutely love the pattern for the Girly Bib. I can't wait to make one. Thanks for sharing the pattern.

I was looking for something to do with a large ball of cotton yarn that someone gave me and this would be perfect. Make it all up in bibs and save for showers. Also, it must be a cancer thing, cause I'm sarcastic, brutally honest (I have been told), share too many opinions, and can be a lots emotional.I also enjoy crochet, needlepoint, knitting in public, and baking. Grandmother of 3. Great grandmother of 1, 4 yr old. Thanks

I found the link to the dishcloth is not working, but through the help of Web Archive, I was able to find it.

Hi Cheryl, sorry, but I seem to be the only one confused here..... when you say, k to the last 2 (or 3, 4, 5, etc) stitches then turn.... what happens to those stitches? I have repeated the pattern 4 times and I keep on increasing the stitches.... what am I doing wrong?

Confused..... thanks

At the end of the bib you have instructions on making the strap. It seems you forgot a step. Before you go on to make the strap you need to knit a row otherwise the strap will be at the wrong end.
Angie Peragine said…
Hi Anne,
I was also confused on that part but I figured it knit til 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 stitches take your working yarn and bring it in between your two needles then turn and continue knitting til the end of the row. You know you have done it right if you have the proper amount of stitches on needle 16 or 17 or 18...not sure if this is the proper way to do it as I am a newer knitter but it works. Great pattern so cute and fast project once you get the hang if it. Hope this helps.
When you turn to knit the remaining stitches at the end of the row is that the same as knitting all odd numbered rows or do you do that separately?
